Wedding and Event Catering
Chef Albert was the perfect match for our wedding reception. From the moment he arrived the experience was all we could have hoped for and more. This was the 1st time using a personal chef and we are very happy we did! The food and presentation was delicious and appealing. Having him and his wife working and mingling with us and our guests was an added bonus. Chef Albert was happy to talk with any of us and you can feel his passion for his craft. Thanks Chef, Donna and RickMar 9, 2020VerifiedAlbert J. Hernandez The Untamed Chef's reply

We hired Albert for my birthday party to do a progressive dinner. It was spectacular. He is a very engaging person who is passionate about his work. His food is beautiful, like works of art with unique combinations of flavors we had not tasted before. He spent hours prior to arrival slow cooking several dishes. He is not a caterer, he is a master artist personal chef!Jun 24, 2018VerifiedAlbert J. Hernandez The Untamed Chef's reply
It was my pleasure you and your friends truly know how to have a wonderful time I'm glad that great food can add a to an already great group of people until next time stay untamed😀
“This was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had” is what my girlfriend said to me after I asked Albert to come cook for her birthday. He and his sous chef provided a 5-course “Californios”-inspired high end Mexican meal with appetizer, meal and desert. He was helpful with menu selections, setup everything in our kitchen, was a joy to chat with the entire time and provided one of the best meals we’ve ever had. My girlfriend said she enjoyed this more than Pujol, one of the top-ranked restaurants in the world! 5/5 Stars! Would do this again and again and again!Apr 25, 2020VerifiedAlbert J.

Thank you both😀 to be in the ranks of such an incredible Chef such as Enrique Olvera and Restaurant Pujol is an Honor in itself. I am glad that we can make your very special Lady happy on her birthday especially with the Lockdown that is forcing so many people to neglect something as special as their Birthday Dinner. It is always an honor to cook for real foodies thank you both for trusting my Culinary Vision for such a Special occasion I hope sooner then later we can do it again... Until Next Time Stay Untamed... ~Chef AJH
All I can say is “Wow!”. I do an annual event for the holiday and I wanted something special this year compared to pros that I’ve used in the last. Without a doubt, Chef Albert delivered! From our very first convo about my concept to the actual event, I couldn’t have asked or anything more. The food was cooked to perfection onsite which I loved. Thanks for making my event special this year. My friends can’t stop talking about the experience.Nov 17, 2019VerifiedAlbert J. Hernandez The Untamed Chef's reply
As a Chef there is nothing more gratifying then cooking for real foodies who understand the complexity and the skill that goes into creating such an incredible dining experience. You have an incredible group of friends and it was an honor to help make a great evening even greater. Until next time my friend Stay Untamed ~Chef AJH
My husband, myself and 5 friends just had an over the top dinner experience with Chef Albert!! Every course from beginning to end was exquisite!!! He paid close attention to dietary needs and was truly passionate with his creations. We will be asking Chef Albert “the untamed chef “ to come back and create another magical evening.Aug 7, 2019Verified
